The pissing match that I was having with Vince is over. Although I am happy with the amicable resolution, I can't say I'm terribly pleased with my heavy handedness in the beginning.
It is easy to step over the line when communication is never face to face - and I did. I'm not saying Vince didn't respond in kind, but I fired the first volley.
Vince has kindly agreed to my suggestion, and is now credited with "additional writing and editing" for Mazes & Perils. I don't know if it was an easy decision for him, but it was the right one. Might have been an easier one of I hadn't started out with two feet on the Irish side of the road (I inherited that with marriage I think).
So, I thank Vince and I apologize for the excessive attitude. I get Grumpy sometimes ;)
(this would be snappier and have links and stuff, but I'm operating from my tablet)
